If there’s one quote that sums up what my life’s work has been about thus far, it’s this one from incomparable Peter Drucker: “Management is about human beings. Its task is to make people capable of joint performance, to make their strengths effective and their weaknesses irrelevant.”
There’s so much in those few words. As leaders and L&D professionals, how do we help people become capable of joint performance? How do we really help them discover, use, and grow their strengths—for their own sakes as well as for their team’s and the organization’s?
I put together this 8-minute screencast to share my thinking about those questions. Feel free to add your thoughts to the comments below.
